Andy's Blog: Our Down Under Tour Part 2

Canada went 7 wins and 0 losses to win the Fierce Four Tournament in Melbourne.  The final against New South Wales proved to be an exciting match as Ryley Batt went head-to-head with a number of different line-ups for Canada.  Canada outlasted NSW with a 61-58 score.  The game was a good test for the players as they continue to make their case to be selected to the Toronto 2015 Para Pan Am Games. 

Today was also a special day since not only was it Father’s Day here in Australia (we are one day ahead of Canada) but it was also Nancy Wong’s birthday.  A special cake was enjoyed at our dinner!  Tomorrow, the players and staff will enjoy a well-deserved day-off.  If the weather holds-up it will be a team visit to the Melbourne Zoo.  Otherwise, off to shopping and seeing a movie where it will be a lot warmer than the frigid gym of the past three days.  Next up – 5-game series versus Team Australia starting Tuesday!
